Casey's father explained on Twitter, "My daughter is Jewish. Her best pal is Muslim. For Halloween they created a superhero team: The Juslims. I've rarely been more proud. Truly."

The post has been liked more than 120,000 times and retweeted more than 60,000 times so far, with commenters seeming to agree that the girls and their costume are inspiring.

Casey and Yasmin coined the term "Juslim" while talking with Casey's father last year about what their religions have in common.

"I'm Muslim and she's Jewish; I'm black and she's white," added Idris. "I think it's really empowering for people to see us as role models in saying let's stop the war and to show equality between all people."
